A 70-year gag order has been placed on evidence showing that British whistleblower David Kelly was murdered.
1. Dr. David Kelly worked for the Ministry of Defense/U.K. as an expert in bio-weapons. He was also one of the key UN weapons inspectors in Iraq.
2. He became concerned about the US/UK claims of WMD in Iraq in the build-up to the Iraq war in 2003, much the same way that former US Ambassador Joseph Wilson became concerned about US claims of yellowcake uranium purchases by Iraq from Niger. Like Wilson, Dr. Kelly became an anonymous source for a journalist. In Kelly's case, he met with BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan.
3. The Ministry of Defence leaked Kelly's identity (just like Valerie Plame Wilson's identity was leaked) to the press.
4. A Parliamentary committee tasked with investigating the planted intelligence (the purpose of which was to "justify' the invasion of Iraq) asked Kelly to testify, which he did.
5. Several days after his testimony, and while preparing for a trip with his wife, Dr. Kelly was found dead in a park near his home and it was ruled a suicide.
6. Leading physicians and first responders who arrived at the park and inspected Kelly's body did not think he committed suicide, even going so far as to sue the British government to prove their case.
"Evidence relating to the death of Government weapons inspector David Kelly is to be kept secret for 70 years, it has been reported.
A highly unusual ruling by Lord Hutton, who chaired the inquiry into Dr Kelly's death, means medical records including the post-mortem report will remain classified until after all those with a direct interest in the case are dead, the Mail on Sunday reported.
A 30-year secrecy order has been placed on written records provided to Lord Hutton's inquiry which were not produced in evidence.
If Dr. Kelly committed suicide, then his medical records should not be sealed as there is no reason to seal them. If, however, Dr. Kelly was murdered, then the sealing of the medical records adds significantly to the government crimes that have already taken place.
Ultimately, what must really be asked is if anyone from the Blair/Bush administrations will ever be held to account for anything. The answer seems to be a solid NO.
